Happy Earth Day!

That said, it's not easy being green in my part of town. I recycle my newspapers at the the big collection box at my son's school. However, I was disappointed to learn that there are no drop off locations for recycling cans, glass or plastic. (One the requirements for the Citizenship in the Community merit badge that my Boy Scout son is working is is to write a letter to a local official - I think we just found out topic.)

Today was Earth Day/Field Day at Son #3's elementary school. I worked the volunteer registration table and the newspaper recycling center (tying bundles with twine - the recycle folks don't want the newspapers in bags). Every time I saw Son #3 throughout the day, he had a new bandaid. Limbo contest? Fell and skinned his right knee. Jump rope? Skinned the left. You get the picture. (I'm just glad the teacher was there to witness it first hand. This kid is quite accident prone.)

All it all, though, it was a really nice day.

As a kid I was very much like Son #3. My mom wouldn't let me play any games unless I was sitting for two weeks before my ballet recital.

I had skinned knees probably from the time I was 6 until I was 12. I guess that's where he inherited his natural gracefulness. :-D

(BTW, I deleted my previous comment. I'm experimenting with a separate blog devoted to my jewelry, but I wanted a separate ID. I was signed in with the wrong ID.)
